Turning goat’s piss in to gasoline: The Blues Brothers soundtrack review!

Jake: You traded the Bluesmobile for this?? Elwood: No, for a microphone. Jake: A microphone…? Ok, I can see that. Then what the hell is this? I guess I must have been about 14 when I first saw this film. I don´t remember much about it other than it hit me square between the eyes and left me a bit dizzy. Dizzy enough that by the time I was 16 or 17 I´d already watched it another 20 or 30 times at least and knew and loved every last moment of it. When people are asked what their favourite movie Read more »

Purple Rain: When Prince was the King.

Purple Rain: When Prince was the King.

A deconstruction of one of the best music films ever made. Here in the UK there has been quite a stir in the last few weeks regarding what many see as the long-overdue reappearance of an artist whose fame and reputation are maybe only outstripped by the sheer force of his musical talent. Prince (for it is he) has been playing a series of reportedly fantastic live shows, airing new material, and even appeared at the recent BRIT awards, although having been gratuitously ‘selfied’ by host and ‘comedian’ James Corden he may now be regretting that. It seems the Man Read more »

When Harry Met Sally – Love and Friendship

When Harry Met Sally – Love and Friendship

“When Harry Met Sally” the eternal dilemma: can men and women be just friends? And the fantastic way this movie takes us on a quest to solve that mystery. Valentine´s Day has come and gone and during the weekend it was all over the place. We didn’t celebrate Valentine´s Day in Colombia before, but now with globalization, the internet, having the same t.v. comedy series airing on the same channels all over the world, and with it also being a huge business and marketing opportunity, it is practically impossible not to “succumb” to the temptation. I know it is mostly Read more »

A look at the soundtrack to a film that not only stands up as one of the best comedy flicks of the 80’s (and of any decade, for that matter) but also has one of the best soundtracks of that decade too. “Listen….. can you smell something?” For this post I’ve decided to take a look at the soundtrack to a film that not only stands up as one of the best comedy flicks of the 80’s (and of any decade, for that matter) but also has one of the best soundtracks of that decade too.

Ferris Bueller: My idea of success

Ferris Bueller: My idea of success

Life wisdom from one of the most iconic films of the last 60 decades: Ferris Bueller´s Day Off. “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” Lately I have been thinking a lot about happiness, success, what I want out of life and what I should do to make it happen. I want to follow Cameron´s advice “I am not going to sit on my ass as the events that affect me unfold to determine the course of my life. I’m going to take a stand. I’m going to Read more »

Kokomo – who should have stayed there?

Kokomo – who should have stayed there?

A review of one of the iconic movies of the 80´s: The plot, the actors, the soundtrack from the movie “Cocktail” This is the first request I’m doing. I am very happy to do it, one because it is for one of my dearest friends and two because I happen to love the movie, the video and the song. A part of me has that idea of paradise…INCEPTION! The film cocktail is a classic 80s chick flick, and there are 3 important things I remember about it – #spoiler alert (although I think since the movie was released in 1988 you Read more »

The soundtrack, quotes and review of the modern classic movie “Enter the Dragon” with master of master´s Bruce Lee.

Also, I do not want to get in trouble with my husband or any of my male friends by saying anything except wonderful things about the movies, and of course, the grand master Read more »
